CoolSculpting® from Zeltiq®

For years, scientists have tried to develop a non-surgical way to eliminate fat cells and change the contours and shape of the body. One of the most exciting discoveries in dermatology involves a patented cooling technology that literally freezes fat off.

My patients have been thrilled with the results from CoolSculpting®. It’s an ideal way to treat fatty areas that refuse to respond to diet and exercise – and to get a jump-start on a weight loss plan.

Freeze Away Stubborn Fat

CoolSculpting® is a breakthrough, non-invasive technology that freezes away stubborn fat. Developed by Harvard scientists, the revolutionary treatment uses a targeted cooling process to freeze unwanted fat cells in the selected area. Once fat cells are crystallized, they die and are naturally eliminated from your body, causing a noticeable, natural-looking reduction. Each CoolSculpting® procedure results in an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated area.

This FDA-cleared treatment is ideal for problem areas such as love handles, muffin tops, bra bulges and other fatty areas. Dr. Grossman has also had success targeting multiple sites and treating more traditional fatty areas, such as the abdomen/tummy.

Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting® involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Only fat cells are targeted – your other cells remain healthy. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.

Results can be seen in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the best results occurring over the next two to four months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the results be?

CoolSculpting® can reduce the fat layer by 20%. If the patient’s treatment plan calls for a second procedure, an additional 20% reduction can be experienced. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the patient.

What happens during the procedure?

The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if the patient’s goal is to reduce their love handles, the doctor will position the system on the patient’s side. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently.

What does it feel like?

As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the one to two hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or simply relaxing.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

Yes. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.

When will I see results?

Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But their body will still be flushing fat cells at that time, and will continue doing so for up to four months.

Are the results permanent?

During the CoolSculpting® procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with their normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
